Rand Paul: Obama's Views On Marriage Couldn't 'Get Any Gayer'

Rand Paul took a swipe at Obama's recent support of gay marriage on Friday, saying he "didn't think his views on marriage could get any gayer."
Speaking at an Iowa Faith & Freedom event on behalf of his father Ron Paul's Republican presidential campaign, the GOP senator mocked Obama's announcement that he had concluded "same sex couples should be able to get married."
“Call me cynical, but I didn’t think his views on marriage could get any gayer,” Paul said, according to Kathie Obradovich of the Des Moines Register.
Both Paul and Obama's comments come less than a week after North Carolina residents passed Amendment One, which prohibits gay marriage and civil unions in the Tar Heel State. A poll released Tuesday shows 50 percent of Americans support extending full marriage rights to gay couples.

Actually, yes. He was talking about Obama using the bible as a reference in favor of gay marriage. Religious people are not in favor of gay marriage because it's against their religion. Not surprising for the huff puff to twist things up to make sure their viewers get a false impression. He's also speaking to a faith based audience and is religious himself.
Nice try though, derp.

he said it bothers him that Obama used a biblical reference to justify it because it wasn't in any version of the Bible he's familiar with.
I don't like when politicians impose their personal religious beliefs on the rest of us. THAT is tyranny.

So, what was Rand Paul actually saying if he wasn't expressing his disapproval?
I don't know what you're trying to prove by highlighting that his audience was religious. Do you think I was unaware? There's a crucifix on the podium.
It's pretty clear what is taking place in the video -- not sure how you're trying to portray it any differently.

Public figures do not have any privacy when speaking in public and he should know that.
